Need Help setting up TV and Surround system
 
I have an Onkyo HT-SR800, a Dish network ViP622 DVR, and a Samsung 46'' LNT4671F.

I have it connected like this:

HDMI from Sattelite to Onkyo HDMI 1 Input
HDMI from Onkyo HDMI output to TV Input
Optical audio out from Sattelite to Onkyo Optical 1 Input

I've connected it as it has told me to. The problem I am having is that when I turn my TV off, the Onkyo still plays sound. The only solution I have so far is to turn off my satellite receiver too when I'm not using my TV. The problem with that is, I just want to turn off my TV and have the sound turn off with it.

I'm pretty sure the only way to do that without using a universal remote with a macro to turn off both the receiver and tv is to have a tv that has optical in and out.

Yeah that's unfortunate.... $3000 worth of stuff and lacking a simple feature.

With that much money spent, have you considered buying a Logitech Remote or something so you can make a macro?

Considered it... I just like my Dish network remote best.

Well you'll have to not be so lazy or get a Harmony. I have the entry level 525 and it's great. Just one button press and I'm watching TV, another and I can be playing one of my consoles. Not juggling remotes and no switching 50 things off before I go to bed. Just one button push. ::D:
